This is one of the best production made fillet knives of all time. Designed by Phillip Hoffman, founder of Lakota and Condor knives, this knife was made in Seki, Japan by Seizo Imai in the mid-1980s.
The Condor 85SSG features a micarta handle, stainless bolsters, and a sturdy 7 long AUS-8 stainless steel blade. Buck Knives recently produced a boning knife that has a similar shaped blade, but the handle on this one is a better design and was patented by Hoffman. You will notice the same design on other Condors. Acquired direct from the closed factory of Seizo Imai and in storage for more than three decades, this is a rare chance to own new old stock from the 1980s. We have supplied a black leather sheath.
The strap is a bit large (see last picture) but knife fits snugly. Please See Item Details Below.
Condition: Used New old stock from Imai factory, may have light shop wear. Leather sheath is not original but decent fit (strap is a little large). Folder Closed, or Fixed Overall Length: 12. Comes with Sheath (not original). Terms of Sale for Knives.Knife laws change and vary according to location.
